# Given the ellipse with equation 9x2 + 25y2 = 225, find the eccentricity and foci.

Answer :

Equation of an ellipse = , whereas

Length of latus rectum =

Length of minor axis = 2b

9x2 + 25y2 = 225

Dividing the equation by 225,

a = 5, b = 3

b2 = a2 (1 - e2)

32 = 52 (1 - e2)

Foci = (±ae,0)

=

Hence, the eccentricity is and foci is (±4,0).
